The research examines the views of initial teacher trainees on various components of their education in the use of new technology to teach their subject. In spite of the importance attached to this facet of initial training, and significant investment in training materials and resources, there is evidence to suggest that much of this investment is not found to be helpful by trainees. The paper therefore looks at learner perspectives on their experiences of trying to get better at information and communication technology (ICT) in the course of their training, and considers ways in which their induction into the use of new technology might be improved. The research also focuses on subject discipline dimensions of ICT use by trainee teachers, by comparing the views of a cohort of science and history PGCE trainees about which ICT applications and equipment were considered to be of use in enhancing teaching and learning in their subject.
